report for our continuing coverage of super tuesday elections. joining us is michael steel and former republican presidential candidate himself herman cain. now, i want to begin with my friend herman cain. >> hello, larry. sfoo hello, herman. supporting newt gingrich, which i totally respect, and i totally respect newt's issues, herman, and i totally respect you, but there is no electability. we're going to find that out after tonight. my big kwu to you, herman cain, is when you regroup, what are you looking for for issues and who will you support in the next round? >> the next round, larry, isn't going to come early. it's going to come a lot later than most people realize, and i beg to differ with you. i think newt is electable, and here's why. i have spent the last several days as well as a week ago actually on the ground talking to people campaigning with newt, campaigning with his daughter, and sometimes giving speeches, and there's a different level of enthusiasm that's growing for newt that i don't think is being captured in some of the polls. for example, he has already been de
of the candidates and all i have to say is, i love you back. thank you. >> michael steele, these have become pivot points for the candidates. we saw that with rick santorum. we saw it with mitt romney. >> let me ask you a question. i'd love to get the students' feedback on this. how did you feel in listening to those two sound bites. which one actually made you move toward that candidate if not physically, at least a little bit emotionally? and that's the rub right there for mitt romney. who gave, i thought, a very -- what's the word. sort of clean. it was like going to the doctor's office. it was everything -- it was sanitized. rick santorum was like you could -- that moment when he says i love you back. you could almost feel, thank you. yeah, i love you, too, man. it was a very different kind of connection. and that's been the undertone that's been driving a lot of the angst for the base is that i'll go fight for you, but i really want to go fight for you. i just don't want to fight for you because you have the moniker of gop nominee on your head. and so the broader public picks up on these thin
needs to channel the one line zingers of a michael steele who is joining us now from washington. seriously, michael steele, what is going on with mitt rop any, will he come out as a better version of the ipad? >> i don't know, it's been six years in the making of this thing, i don't know. the problem is, look, this is the guy, this is who he is. so, instead of trying to package him into ronald reagan or to bill clinton or some other, you know, bigger than life political figure, let him be himself, so he may be a little uncomfortable standing on the stage. build around that. make that part of the theme about him so people feel comfortable with that instead of judging him against other candidates or likely can dade d like a chris christie, make the argument for your candidacy, but most importantly for your future administration, because that is what everyone, including the base is looking to hear. that is what will move them toward you. so, until you -- until they get comfortable with mitt romney, his team around him and stop worrying about the gaffes and the foot in mouth disease
committee, michael steele. perfect morning to have you all onboard. willie, hello. >> wow. >> a couple of things went down last night. we -- mitt lost to rick santorum and to newt. right? >> third place in both states. >> that's not good, michael. >> not good. and they keep crying about the numbers, we've got the delegates and i think willie had the perfect quote for the day. you know, it's like you know, vote for me, i've got the math. it doesn't work like that. >> the math -- >> something like that. >> they keep talking about the math. >> well, they do, and the reality of it is, you're not going to waltz into the nomination with the votes in the back pocket. give all that to romney, fine, you're close to somewhere around 400 delegates short to actually the get the nomination. and with proportional voting coming up with everything else, unless he's pulling 50% to 60% of that vote, i don't know how he gets there. the only way it happens is if newt or santorum drops out of the race and that changes it. but as you can see from last night, i don't think anybody's going anywhere. there's n
former rnc chair, michael steele. the host of msnbc's "way too early," sir william geist of vanderbilt, the indubitable patricia murphy of the daily beast and citizen jane politics, and the lovely "new york daily news" very own columnist, s.e. cupp. the senate voted 51 to 48 against a measure that would have repealed president obama's contraception mandate, a closer vote than i thought it would be, actually. unsurprisingly, those running for president and specifically we'll talk about mitt romney, have had a tricky time with this. mitt romney yesterday saying for about an hour that he did not support the blunt amendment, and then reversing course abruptly, an hour or so later, saying he would. it is a classic mitt romney move, is it not, michael steele? >> why me? >> we give you the softballs. >> i prefer notorious, probably will be after this answer. but, no, i think, yeah, for me, i think it was an honest moment, to be quite frank about it. and you know, that's what happens in politics. i've been there! you know, when you say that you speak truth -- or at least how you

the delegates in hand before tampa. >> the beginning of the end says mark halperin. michael steele, you once said that mitt romney, the brother just can't bake the cake. it looks like the oven may be hot enough for romney. let's look at the winner board. romney at 47% of the vote in illinois. rick santorum at 35%. ron paul at 9% is, gingrich at 8%. more staggering i guess is the delegate total romney at 485, santorum at 193, gingrich at 137, paul at 34. what do you make of it? >> i agree with park. he's clearly and always been kind of the guy to beat and been out there, but it doesn't mean you're not going to have tensions going into this convention that i still don't believe he'll have 1144 when he gets to tampa. he'll have to negotiate that. i don't see how he wins 50 plus percent of the delegates. he got 47 here in illinois, which was tailor-made for him. illinois's a state where he should have had 52, 53% of the vote in which case that -- when you hit that threshold, you get all the dels under the rules. if you're still winning the way he's winning, it's all proportional. tell me where y
't be called tonight in ohio. former chairman of the republican party michael steele, and you have been a booster for the long drawn out primary campaign and does that apply to long drawn out primary nights like th like this? do you lick your chops and see this type of night for the republicans? >> i do. actually, i do. because it is part of the american story and we complain about people when they don't get en ga engage and you wonder why and when you create an avenue for them to express themselves and make a choice, we should celebrate that, and i do. yeah, i mean, do you want to be up at 1:00 or 2:00 in the morning and doing politics? some of us do, but most of us don't, but the point is that the people of ohio like we have seen in idaho and georgia and elsewhere tonight had a chance to get out and to save, hey, this is who we want. think about it this way, rachel, you know, under the old system this contest given all of the other, you know, pieces to it could have been over at the beginning of february. when you go through the iowa caucuses and that process and romney comes out and
with michael steele, former republican national committee chairman. he talks about the stakes for the remaining candidateses and assesses the republican party strategy going into the general election. this is about an hour and 20 minutes. >> in c-span's washington classroom we're joined by students from george mason university in fairfax, virginia, and the washington center here in washington, d.c. and joining us here in our studios, michael steele, former chairman of the republican national committee, former lieutenant governor of maryland. appreciate you being with us. >> great to be with you, steve. >> there could be a couple story lines coming out of tomorrow's super tuesday vote. what are they? >> well, there are actually more than a couple when you really break it it down. you've got the whole obvious, the mitt romney line which is winning big in places like ohio, for example. and winning at least one of the southern states to really kind of solidify for himself the argument that he is the relevant player to go forward who can take on the from the prt, number one. number two, that the ba

and michael steele is chairman of the republican national party and an msnbc political analyst. let's see how long we agree. there are several possible outcomes. there's two states. how many outcomes can there be from the votes tonight in mississippi and alabama. first, let's say santorum wins both tonight. if that happens, that means newt gets blown out of the race, i think. and santorum secures the position of clearly number-one challenger to mitt romney. let's stop. here's another possibility. gingrich could win both tonight. he's from that area. he's from georgia. that could hit santorum, which helps romney. it keeps him in the race. third, you could have a gingrich/santorum split tonight. each one winning a state. if that happens, no big changes. finally, romney could take one of the states, say mississippi. that's big for romney because if he wins mississippi and newt wins alabama, that's very bad for santorum and very good for romney. that's my view. let's go through your thinking. >> i agree with that. >> all that? >> i agree those are the basic four scenarios. i guess i agree with th
democrats. michael steel is a political analyst. and joan walsh is an msnbc analyst. let's start on the reaction. it seems we know that most voters are women. we keep forgetting that. obviously, there's more men out there talking all the time. that's just a fact of life. they are out there talking. and women, of course, just quietly vote. and they make -- i don't think they are single issue voters, but they have concerns that men don't have. they are more concerned with health care, social security, medicare. they take care of older parents and worry about themselves. there's like one guy in the old folks home. he has big ears and he's very funny. but there's a lot of women there. men say with any luck, i won't need social security. but joan, on the issue of these issues like contraception and birth control and abortion rights, they do ring -- here's my suggestion. it's about the question, does this candidate care about people like me? the fundamental political question. >> right. but men are asking this question too because i think the thing that rush limbaugh did is make a lot
with mitt romney's authenticity problem. he's certainly got one. michael steele was chairman of the republican national committee for years and howard fineman is the editorial director of "the huffington post" which has only been around for years. both are msnbc political analysts. gentlemen, let's start with the pro. let me ask you about this guy. howard, what was the great quote of the day from romney? >> he was talking to a birmingham, alabama, radio station about his prospects in the south, and he said, i realize i'm playing a bit of an away game. that was very sporty. that was kind of sporting of him. >> in other words, when he goes south, it's not really him. >> it's a bit of an away game. it's giving away all too honestly what his problem is. this is a southern base, modern republican party. >> there you go again. >> why does he always do this? >> i don't know. he's not feeling it. there's something about him that the switch turns off, the mouth opens, and this comes out. i don't know how you now go into mississippi, alabama, kansas, and make the argument that i'm one
thing. they are no more thoughtful than the rest of us let's ask an actual gatekeeper. michael steele joins us from washington as chairman of the republican national committee, he oversaw the changes and the rules of this year's delegation. >> call me crazy. how are you doing? >> i would never call you crazy. >> crazy like a fox, crazy like a fox. >> that's -- that's -- you can now make the case. have you the opportunity to make that case. here's what i would like you to describe to us. there were rule changes that were created in november, 2008. >> my understanding was that there was a feeling that -- on the republican side that john mccain sewed up the nomination too quickly. and actually the long contested primary on the democratic side which at the time everyone was worried about was actually the party's benefit and rules were changed with an eye towards moving the contest in that direction. is that the case? >> you just summed it up perfectly. exactly the analysis that came out of the 2008 primary. by this time in 2008, our nominee was decided and it was john mccain and for the n
to president obama republican said we bought that also. backfired-michael steele had of the party >> quickly talk more about tennessee surprise and rick santorum won that state >> not a surprise if he winds can make sense but mitt romney bigger for mitt romney it was mitt romney's only in the south business people there is hope for grabs attention in the sow and that everybody coalescing around support from key conservative eric cantor at the john ashcroft for attorney general caulescent around mitt romney needed something to happen in the south next week expect those to go mitt romney way. >> paul lisneck political analyst thank you for joining >> continuing to follow results throughout the night that the latest results on the website wgntv.com. president obama took a swipe at republican presidential candidates over iran comments are they today president said ggop candidates taking military action against iran they should do so >> casual people talking about war reminded of the cost involved in war iran permission for united nations inspectors to visit a site suspected of nuclear weapon
will hear from michael steele. >> we are joined by students from fairfax, va., and the washington center here in washington, d.c., and joining us is michael steele, the former chairman of the committee. great to have you with us. there are a couple of story lines that could come out. what are they? >> there are more than a couple. you have the mitt romney it which is winning big in places like ohio and winning one of the southern states to release solidify the argument he is a player to go -- to solidify the argument he is the player. the base has begun to gel around winning in the south for example, so he has a great opportunity to bring closure to the process of throwing of someone like rick santorum, his story line is going to be, -- to the process. for someone like rick santorum, his story line is going to be continuing the story line, winning ohio, which he -- if he does the resets of thing. the base will have an opportunity to say, maybe we should look closer of someone like santorum going forward. and you have georgia and the newt gingrich story line, witches region which is makin
state and nothing else yesterday, why is he staying in the race? >> seriously, michael steele, what is going on with mitt romney? >> this is the guy, this is who he is. >> and in 2012, we're going to get him out of the white house. >> he won the most states, he won the most delegates. >> you have to give him his due. >> why does mitt romney still look like a big bowl of cold mashed peas? >> you don't need people that will crawl across broken glass to vote for mitt romney. >> the reality will settle in and they'll understand, mitt romney is going to be the nominee. >> if you don't run chris christie, mitt romney will be the nominee and we'll lose. we'll lose. >>> the limbaugh aftershocks continue. president obama's re-election team wants you to never forget what mitt romney did not do when rush limbaugh attacked georgewn law student sandra flora. >> there's an mri for the soul and people learn about you, along the way there are tests. we saw one last week when rush limbaugh engaged in tt horrendous outburst against the young woman law student from georgetown. and the republican candi
are the first three we will hear from. bring in the former chairman of the republican party, michael steel. nice to see you, mr. chairman. >> hey, rachel, what's up? >> i saw you mixing it up with joan walsh about the politics of the rush limbaugh comments about sandra fluke, the nature of his apology, mitt romney's inability to say woe do anything other than use different language there you seem to think this is sometime a real fight about contraception that's worth having between the parties. do you think that this is what republicans and democrats ought to be fighting for, putting republicans in a good stead heading to november? >> no, i don't. that is exactly the point. i think all of this could have been nipped in the bud early, early on for the leadership of the party, particularly those candidates running for president, to -- you know, without hesitation just rebuke the profanity of the comments. to make it clear this is not a reflection of who we are as conservatives what we stand for as a broadly based republican party and i thought again, one of those missed opportunity for the leaders
a brokered convention. when you hear that, what do you think? that's michael steel who used to be the chairman obviously. >> i like michael steel. >> oh, no. whenever someone starts, i like -- i'm going to write that down as one of my phrases, i like. >> bless his heart, i hope you don't buzz me on this. >> you know what that means, chip. >> we know what's coming. this is not good for the party, to go through a brokered convention. i don't think that's what chairman steel's goal was. i think it was make the process a little longer. the last 20 years the nomination's been over in one or two or three states. now we have this very long process but usually we would be good. then we added super pacs to it so no longer do you win states to get momentum to stay in the race. now you just get one or two contributors to write really big checks and you can stay in the whole way and ultimately that may not be good for our nominee. now mitt romney is using it if he's the nominee to his advantage. senator santorum has used this time to his advantage to build a great organization that a lo
convention. michael steele said that himself. we are going to sit back and watch the drama. >> you make it a fight to sunday morning. thank you both. >> there are new fears that the rising price of gas could pose a serious threat to the recovery of the u.s. economy. the average national gas price is energy $4 a gallon and some economists say it could hit $5 and cause an immediate downturn. brenda buttner is here. >> hi. >> it impacts what you pay to transport the goods and that raises the price of the goods. so how severe is the impact? >> we have been luck thetime, as opposed to between the 08, there are a couple of thairngs different. number 1, some energy sources have been going down. we have seen natural gas falling. so consumers haven't been hit as hard by the rising price of gas. and they have been saving more as unemployment has been going down a bit. but we are right at a tipping point. >> you hit a key point. that's hiring from small businesses. some surveys are showing that small businesses are getting hit and they are about to start rising prices prices and they're about -- t
at santorum, it will be interesting to see what happens because when michael steele gave that same comment about limbaugh being an entertainer he got killed for it and was forced to apologize. i wonder what will happen to santorum. he may find himself in a bit of a glitch. the comments were out reasoningous and should never have been made. that goes without saying. >> why do you think mitt romney's comments are go good and why you think any of the front-runners on the republican side weighed in with a more aggressive condemnation? >> romney could have been a little more aggressive, but you don't pick a fight with rush limbaugh. >> is that what it is? >> yeah, to some extent, and plus he was able -- more importantly, politically, he was able to bring it back to the issues. he's going strong into ohio and he should stay on his message and not get tangled up into any of this conversation. >> ann, do you agree with that because my question to you is have one of the candidates stepped up and really condemned limbaugh's comments? might it should helped in the primary in do you think there's poli
. >> michael steel, a happy, happy man. i think he's the only one who is happy. no, haley barbour was saying this is not the worst thing in the world to have a contesting convention. he said, i don't think anyone in require thought rind -- right mind has thought this is good. >> maybe if he had never run before. but he's been out there, you don't need to learn fen who he is and allow for the mistakes. >> i think mitt romney is not the greatest can dat in the world. he's got skills as a businessman and other skills but i think being a political candidate is not necessarily he highest among them. some people get better after time, i don't think he does. >> it's like a programming note behind the scenes, there are certain operatives, certain officials when they say something, you really do have to listen. i put haley barbour in that category, put karl rove in that category, ed gillespie, who ran the reform n.c. an ran the bush white house for a while. they know so many people and are in constant contact with people across the country, it's tons of expertise, a mirror of what happened throughout
with us. >> michael steele. pew research says 3 in 10 republicans say their opinion has worsened since the primary began. >> he knew it was a man of steel. maybe he wasn't buried at sea. there's a report that the government might be keeping a big secret about that guy, usama bin laden, his body actually came to america? we'll tell you about that. >> then the president has seen a spike in female support. are republicans doing something wrong? can they win back that vote before the november election? that debate with those two ladies coming up. forty years ago, he wasn't looking for financial advice. back then, he had something more important to do. he wasn't focused on his future but fortunately, somebody else was. at usaa we provide retirement planning for our military, veterans and their families. now more than ever, it's important to get financial advice from people who share your military values. call now for our free guide and tips on planning for your retirement this tax season. if you have painful, swollen joints, i've been in your shoes. one day i'm on top of the world... the n
